    Guys!

    I started using IDM (Internet Download Manager) since many days, recently I was using Flashget!

    But I can't find some options in IDM Settings:

    1.) There is no setting to automatically remove completed d/l entry from the list.
    2.) There is no option to set no. of simultaneously downloads.
    3.) There is an option to set no. of fragments to download a file in its options but when we start or add a download, it doesnt show the details, so that we can choose how many fragments should be used to d/l this file! So the problem is that we can choose no. of fragments for each file.

    If anybody knows solutions, pls post them! :)

    There is an option for that.Check the Download combo box in Downloads -> Scheduler.So just keep adding files in the queue and the files will be downloadedaccording to your preference of simultaneous downloads.

    How is IDM in comparison with FlashGet? I am a long time FlashGet user, and I don't find any reason to change to other download manager.

    thnx buddy! I didnt check that option :D
    Now 1 point has been solved, what about other points?

    @aadipa
    I found approx. no difference in speed!
    But recently Flashget started giving problems in d/l ing files from Rapidshare, it downloaded just a few KB files from Rapidshare whenever I tried to d/l any file from RS :(

    Thats why I moved to IDM, but its good! U can give it a try :)

    IDA has a lot of options to customize to your need. Give it a try.
